Litecoin MimbleWimble August Recap Replace


This replace was written and offered by Litecoin MimbleWimble lead developer David Burkett.



Final month I merged the node code on prime of the LTC 0.21 launch codebase (see July replace), so this month started with me merging the pockets code. It seems that loads modified within the pockets between 0.18 and 0.21, so I needed to spend a number of weeks redesigning how we calculate and handle MWEB addresses and keys. The top end result was even cleaner than we had with 0.18 although, so this turned out to be factor, regardless of requiring the additional effort 🙂

For the code monkeys amongst you, nearly all of the modifications have been in: scriptpubkeyman.cpp 1, mweb_pockets.cpp, and Keychain.cpp.

Except for that, I had a variety of bugs and exams to repair on account of the merge, which I used to be capable of do exactly in time for the auditors at Quarkslab to incorporate of their evaluate. On that observe…

Opinions & Audits

I’m working very carefully with one of many Quarkslab auditors now. She has been going over the code and is within the preliminary phases of testing. We have been capable of get her synced towards mainnet, and she or he additionally requested I create a testnet for them, which they’re now linked to and experimenting on.


Whereas we’re now merged on prime of 0.21 launch code, we truly haven’t even launched 0.21 but 😀. I used to be requested to take over managing this launch, so I spent the previous week getting that launch code prepared. Assuming I can herd the opposite devs collectively (which is loads like herding cats), then I anticipate we’ll be capable of have 0.21 launched by my subsequent replace. This may embody, amongst many different issues, assist for Taproot 🚀. Hopefully we will get 0.21 adopted rapidly, and miners signalling for Taproot, as a result of the next month, I’ll be chopping the discharge for MWEB (which I’m calling 0.22-ish till somebody offers me an official launch quantity). The discharge date for 0.22-ish might be extremely depending on the outcomes of the audit, which gained’t be utterly completed till mid-October. So whereas we’ll stay optimistic for an October thirty first 🎃 launch for now, write the date down very evenly in pencil, not pen 😉

Notable Mentions

Ryan Wright is an absolute baller. Whereas I used to be looking for a quiet road nook to stay (see: background 18), he swooped in with a 100 LTC donation 2 simply earlier than I listed my home in the marketplace 😜

MWEB is now totally funded! 💰 🤑 💵

All extra donations collected will proceed to fund me for future improvement initiatives. There’s nonetheless a lot extra I need to do: Dandelion for P2P-level privateness, CoinSwap assist, syncing enhancements, Atomic Swaps, watch-only addresses, MWEB assist for {hardware} wallets & mild shoppers, and far, rather more. So nonetheless chip in 6 each time you’ll be able to 🙏
